What do the Dirty Dems’ victories last Tuesday mean for the upcoming 2018 elections? Answer: NOTHING!
First of all, New Jersey is a hopelessly blue state and Virginia has been moving rapidly in that direction for some time, which is why I have repeatedly warned readers that I was skeptical the race in Virginia was as close as some pollsters claimed. The plain fact is that Northeast Virginia is a liberal-elite extension of D.C., not just geographically but ideologically.
Second, Ed Gillespie is a classic establishment gentleman, having served as White House Counselor to George W. Bush and head of the Republican National Committee. Not that long ago, such credentials would have been impressive, but in today’s populist environment they are actually liabilities.
Even so, Gillespie might have had a better chance if he had not insulted the intelligence of Republican voters by playing the wishy-washy, finger-in-the-wind game. By trying to distance himself from President Trump while at the same time laboring to convince voters that he agreed with Trump’s policies, he became devoid of credibility. So much so that he lost the Virginia governor’s race by a greater margin than Trump lost to Hillary.
In other words, last Tuesday’s elections went pretty much as expected, which is why I was surprised (but should not have been) that the Dirty Dems and their media allies immediately started insisting that the GOP losses in Virginia and New Jersey constituted a backlash against President Trump and signified the beginning of the end of the populist movement.
Many of the media comments were embarrassingly over the top, with FNM cretins declaring the Democratic victories as no less than a triumph of good over evil. Even Fox News establishment talking-pointer Steve Hayes couldn’t stop reminding everyone how seriously “under water” Donald Trump was. The guy is so shielded from reality inside the Beltway bubble that he doesn’t understand that the drumbeating about Trump’s disapproval ratings is nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of Democrats and their media allies.
I guess it’s possible Trump could lose in 2020, but if he does, it won’t be because of his approval/disapproval ratings. When pundits gloat about Trump’s ratings, they are looking at them in a vacuum; i.e., they don’t take into account Trump’s ratings in each individual state. It’s a delusional view which implies that the electoral college is irrelevant and that all that counts is the popular vote.
Calling all Dirty Dems: The fact is that Trump can afford to lose California, New York, and Illinois by 20 million votes and it still wouldn’t matter. This is precisely what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they ingeniously came up with the idea of basing election results on the electoral college.
What all this means is that the Radical Left folks are still in a state of denial. They don’t want to face the reality that people in the thirty states Trump won still emphatically reject the idea of being ruled by gun-grabbing, single-payer loving, politically correct, violence-prone leftists who populate the Obama-Hillary states.
That said, I continue to believe that Republicans will pick up a number of seats in the House in 2018 and perhaps six or seven seats in the Senate. There’s also a good chance that in 2020 Trump will lose the popular vote by an even greater margin than in 2016, yet still win the election.
If I’m right about this, it’s likely to put the entire Democratic Party on suicide watch. These people are not only immoral, they’re also dumb as rocks. As hard as it is for normal folks to understand, they are physiologically and psychologically incapable of acknowledging reality.
Which brings me to Bush 41 and Bush 43, both of whom were just fine with a Marxist president carrying out his promise to fundamentally transform the United States of America. That’s right, nary a word of dissent during eight years of Barack Obama’s anti-American policies.
They had no problem with Barack Obama running up more debt than all other U.S. presidents combined.
They had no problem with Barack Obama making purposely divisive statements like “We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends” and “If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun.”
They had no problem with Barack Obama chiming in on local homicides like Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, and Freddie Gray and being proven wrong every time.
They had no problem with Barack Obama politicizing the Justice Department day in and day out.
They had no problem with the Benghazi scandal, the spread of ISIS, or Obama’s apology tours.
They had no problem with Barack Obama being caught on a hot mic telling Russian president Dmitry Medvedev, “After my election I have more flexibility.” To which Medvedev responded, “I understand. I will transmit this information to Vladimir.”
Well, George 41 and George 43, let me clue you on the worst-kept secret in the world: Barack Obama was the most corrupt president in U.S. history! Got it?
Does all this mean I believe the Bushes are bad people? In the general sense of the word, no, I don’t believe the word bad applies to them. They are decent human beings who are simply committed to doing everything they can to keep the status quo, so committed that they are blinded to the reality that the aim of the Dirty Dems is to destroy any Republican who stands in the way of their achieving their Marxist agenda.
Worst of all, because of their flawed vision, they sincerely believe it is right and proper to make nice to the Dirty Dems. This is more a perversity than a sin. It’s also stupidity. But regardless of what it is, the bottom line is that, in their own way, Republicans like the Bushes do more damage to America than those in the Radical Left by offering no resistance to the latter’s tyranny.
Having said all this, I would argue that it’s not Trump who is under water. It’s the failed and cowardly policies of establishment Republicans, cheered on by hopeless globalists like the Bushes, that are under water.
Bush Republicans long ago lost the battle for the soul of working Americans, but, incredible as it may seem, they don’t even know it. Which is why the 2018 midterms and 2020 presidential election will be even more traumatic for them than the 2016 seismic jolt from which they have not yet recovered.
And might I add that it couldn’t happen to a more deserving group of people.
